Lee to Tharanga, no run, more pace on this one now from Lee, 134.7 kph, much fuller too, Tharanga is not particularly to the pitch and pushes carefully to mid off

0.3

Lee to Tharanga, no run, goes back of a length now, so three different lengths in three deliveries from Lee, Tharanga keeps it down on the leg side and Lee rushes forward to field

0.4

Lee to Tharanga, no run, Lee puts more effort in a shortish one, hits Tharanga hard on the bat as he pushes towards cover

0.5

Lee to Tharanga, no run, pitched up and heading for off stump, 137.9 kph, Tharanga blocks with a straight bat, just a touch late in getting bat down

0.6

Lee to Tharanga, no run, opens the bat face late and runs a back of a length ball around middle to point, nothing in terms of width from Lee

Sri Lanka 0/0   WU Tharanga 0* (6b)

1.3

Bollinger to Tharanga, no run, Dougie gets the angle going, in the left-hander from short of a length, and he takes it on the body as he misses the work on the leg side

1.4

Bollinger to Tharanga, no run, now he goes outside off stump, Dougie, and gets lots of bounce as it moves away from back of a length, Tharanga tried to go on the toes and cut but the bounce beat him

1.5

Bollinger to Tharanga, FOUR, tharanga gets going with an inside edge, oh well, what's new you say, throws his bat from the crease at one close to off stump, but it goes fine on the leg side past the keeper

1.6

Bollinger to Tharanga, no run, bit of away shape for Dougie, but this time Tharanga leaves outside off

Sri Lanka 5/0   WU Tharanga 4* (10b 1x4)

2.2

2.5

Lee to Tharanga, no run, some width outside off but tharanga finds Ponting this time with the cut

2.6

Lee to Tharanga, no run, even more width, and much fuller outside off, Tharanga eagerly goes on the front foot to bash it through extra cover but hits it back down the track as he gets too across

Sri Lanka 8/0   WU Tharanga 5* (13b 1x4)

4.1

Lee to Tharanga, 1 run, he is playing Lee with the angle as he comes from round the stumps, and works him towards square leg

4.4

Lee to Tharanga, no run, nast bouncer from Lee and he gives the look to Tharanga as well, angled in from wide of the crease, gets big on Tharanga and almost hits him near the throat, he just manages to get out of the way

4.5

Lee to Tharanga, 1 run, well done, arching back and using the angle from a length to steer to third man

Sri Lanka 19/0   WU Tharanga 7* (16b 1x4)

5.1

Bollinger to Tharanga, no run, tries to use the pace to guide a back of a length ball it wide of point but hits it straight to the man

5.2

Bollinger to Tharanga, no run, beats him outside off stump, straightish one on a length, holding its line just a bit as Doug slows it down, Tharanga came forward but the lack of pace did him and he had a loose prod at it

5.3

Bollinger to Tharanga, no run, worked on the leg side off the pads

5.4

Bollinger to Tharanga, 1 run, they take on midwicket for the single, as there is a fumble there, and make it safely in the end as the throw from David Hussey is wide of the keeper

6.1

Lee to Tharanga, no run, in to the left-hander with the angle, and defended towards cover

6.2

Lee to Tharanga, OUT, Lee has gone through Tharanga, pretty ordinary shot and the stumps are splattered, it was the slower one from Lee, 125.3 kph, full and on the stumps, Tharanga just had a huge heave at it, and played all over it

WU Tharanga b Lee 8 (33m 22b 1x4 0x6) SR: 36.36

Sri Lanka 24/2   WU Tharanga 8 (22b 1x4)
